Post image for The Yetee: Today’s Tee For Your Torso – Hands on T-shirt Review!

Two tees for me! Sorry for being especially excited, but I received some great tees from The Yetee, and I know you wouldn’t blame me for being even more cheerful than usual after you see the tees I get to wear. For this review, Andy went ahead and ordered from The Yetee’s grab-bag, (grab-bag meaning random tees) for me to review. The guys over at The Yetee are mind-readers, or maybe I am just really lucky, because I got two t-shirts that I have always wanted from them, but missed when they were printed a little while ago.

Let me back up a bit, are you familiar with The Yetee? Well you really should become acquainted soon if you aren’t. They are a tee-a-day site which basically says it all; they showcase a new tee daily and once that time is over (and in The Yetee’s case, it’s 24 hours most cycles, though sometimes 48 hours depending on the shirt), then after the timer runs out, the tee is gone forever. The Yetee has come a long way since they first launched, which I can’t believe was only a little over a year ago, but their success doesn’t come as much of a surprise since it’s run and owned by two dedicated artists, Glen O’Neill and Mike Mancuso, which needless to say, both have a great passion for tees. It’s also safe to say that The Yetee is a generous crew as they have been involved and hosted various fundraisers for charities throughout their time as a business, and we all can’t help but admire and applaud that.

My tees were nicely packed in a normal mailer, everything printed clearly, and even the cute Yetee mascot placed sweetly on the shipping label. I would love to see a custom printed mailer with their mascot on it somewhere, that would be an excellent touch. Inside, tucked in with my tees, were several stickers, and cute ones at that! The illustrations are based on The Yetee’s mascot – the pretty Yetee lady by Megan Lara and the cool, growling Yetee face by WinterArtwork, both being designers that are dominating the t-shirt world.

Speaking of Megan Lara, this one titled Do What You Dream was designed by her and is inspired by one of my most loved childhood films, The NeverEnding Story. As you can see, it’s completely filled with characters from the film and the art is just gorgeous, simple as that. I am especially drawn to the composition, as well as the astounding glow of Falcor above the Empress – this t-shirt is a dream to those who know and love this story.

This shirt is printed on a women’s small Gildan Softstyle, which I mentioned in my previous review, tends to be a little short for me (and, sadly, a little too tight, ugh.) I really need to remember to order a medium when it comes to Gildan! I am not criticizing this blank, rather I actually really like the softness of the Softstyle as it’s name gives away, but I like tees to fit a little loose rather than being really form-fitting.

The next tee is a good one on many levels. 1.) It’s The Yetee’s 100th design to be printed, which makes it special to me. 2.) It also features the one and only, Yetee, the mascot and logo of this company. AND 3.) Yetee is repeated on this tee and in so many different pop-culturey ways, I can’t pick a favorite! Actually, I lied, I love the Chewbacca Yetee the best…

Unlike the other tee, this one is printed on a women’s small Tultex Fine Jersey blank. It fits nicely as well, but seems to feel a little thicker than the Gildan Softstyle, as well as a little larger and longer, so I like the fit of this one a little more. I also like how the sleeves are longer on the Tultex – I prefer them to the normal capped sleeves that most girly fitted tees have. The Yetee also prints using heathered tees on occasion, which are of a poly blend – so it seems to me that they print on several types depending on the design and availability.

As for print, both of the tees are spot on. The Do What You Dream feels especially smooth and soft, and when you look at it up close it’s incredibly clean, obviously screen printed and all proudly printed at Threadbird! The only thing that I miss when examining everything, is the possibility of a custom printed tag or sewn on tag – either one would have really grabbed my attention. Even The Yetee logo printed subtly somewhere would be a great addition to the tee as a whole.

Thank you Glen and Mike over at The Yetee for sending me tees to be reviewed, though you had no idea I was going to, but don’t fret, you won me over with your quality and branding, that’s for sure! And as always, thanks to everyone for reading!

Post image for ‘The Returners’ T-shirt by Kari Fry at The Yetee – One Last Chance to Help!

If you have been keeping up with my posts this week about the charity tees for sale at The Yetee, then you know exactly what this tee is all about! If you are clueless, let me fill you in; The Yetee has been selling tees this week to raise money to go to The Organization for Autism Research and with each t-shirt sold, The Yetee donates $3 directly to this great cause. Not only that, The Yetee is in coordination with Summer Games Done Quick, a gaming marathon – learn more by reading my last blog post!

Two tees sold, one to go and you get to see it here first before it is up for sale in just a few hours! This last of the three tees sold this week is by the lovely Kari Fry titled, The Returners! Don’t you just enjoy her style? This design, like the others this week, is packed full of video game characters and I just can’t decide which is my favorite… thanks for the great work, Kari!

One last thing, The Yetee has officially raised $1,500 with your purchases of shirts! That’s incredible, and remember, there’s still time to help – go shop!

Post image for Sneak Peek of ‘Pixel Pandamonium’ at The Yetee – Second of Three Tees Sold for a Good Cause!

This week The Yetee has been selling t-shirts (three to be exact) for the Speed Demos Archives annual Summer gaming marathon – the Summer Games Done Quick, which raises money for charity! The Yetee is donating $3 from every shirt sold; it will go directly to The Organization for Autism Research, a worthy cause indeed. I can’t stress enough how cool The Yetee, the Speed Demos Archives, and the artists are for putting this all together, truly inspiring.

For the next few hours, you can still buy the first of three tees, Speed Runnin’, designed by Ryan Haak AND immediately after that, Pixel Pandamonium by Drew Wise will go live! (You’re getting a sneak peek thanks to Glen at The Yetee, thanks Glen!) This new design, shown right above, is not only packed with popular video game characters, all done in Drew’s pixely style, but it also glows in the dark! You are sure to be noticed while wearing this tee!

What you should do:

Remember to check back here on HYA or at The Yetee for the last of the three tees – you won’t be sorry!

Post image for The Yetee – Cool Tees and Gaming Marathons, All for a Great Cause!

So lookie here, if you haven’t heard already, the folks over at The Yetee are offering three tees over the next six days that not only generate smiles from gamers and tee lovers alike, but also a portion goes to a very worthy charity! See, $3 from each shirt sold will be donated to The Organization for Autism Research, a worthy cause if I don’t say so myself. (Oh, I already did!)

Not only that, but this event is in coordination with a Gaming Marathon – The Summer Games Done Quick or SGDQ, hosted by Speed Demo Archives! Let me tell you more about SGDQ: it is a whooping 4 days of gaming (a marathon, if you will), in which speedruns of games are livecast and better yet, most of the characters on the t-shirts featured on The Yetee are from the games played during the marathon! The livecast starts today, May 24th – go check it out!

So on to the tees, what you all are really excited about! The first design Speed Runnin’ (shown above), is by Ryan Haak – nice one Ryan! This t-shirt is FULL of our favorite video game characters, speeding on through almost like they will burst right out of the tee on that Warthog! Again you have to remember $3 from your purchase will be going to a more than noble charity, and I know you wanna help, right?

Keep an eye out here on HYA for a sneak peek at the next two tees – I’ll keep you posted!

metroid t-shirt teefury

Sorry about the level of disruption to the site at the moment, I’m acting as something of a nightwatchman on a building site for my other job, which does change my schedule around quite a lot as you’d imagine. The other bloggers will hopefully be picking up the slack and I see that Matt & Leah have already posted a couple of great articles.

I hadn’t heard of Tee Busters before, are they new? Well, they’ve got a Darth Vader shirt that I suppose is inspired by the ads where the kid is trying to use the force on his Dad’s car. Is it a VW ad?
